| Compress Compound Images in H.264/MPGE-4 AVC by Using Compound Image Coding - Girish Kumar Patra ,N Venkateswarlu , B Malleshwari , B Murali Krishna Compound images are a combination of text, graphics and natural image. They present strong anisotropic features, especially on the text and graphics parts. These anisotropic features often render conventional compression inefficient. Thus, this paper proposes a novel coding scheme from the H.264 intraframe coding. In the scheme, two new intramodes are developed to better exploit spatial correlation in compound images...
